The Speedcast XT-B uses Shimano’s X-Ship gearing for maximum efficiency.
With a powerful retrieve ratio of 4.3:1 for confident fish-playing the Speedcast XT-B also retrieves a remarkable 103cm of line per handle turn making it ideal for long distance fishing. The combination of 2 speed oscillation, Aero Wrap II and a cold forged AR-C spool also make this model an excellent distance casting reel. Fitted with a Baitrunner spool, the Speedcast XT-B is perfect for long range carp angling on large waters.
The reel is equipped with a line reducer (size 10.000 with line capacity of 0,40mm/300m).
